The studio was not happy with the ending, and taking in responses from preview audiences, ordered re-shoots a month after original filming had ended. Sam Wood took over as director and James Wong Howe as cinematographer for the re-shoots, but received no on-screen credit for their three weeks of work. See more »

It is quite a bizarre mixture of spy film and Rom.The most likely reason for this is the desire of MGM to ensure that this spy film would have some appeal to all types of audiences.Maybe the factor of at least 8 writers contributes to the explanation.There are many sub plots that go totally unexplained.Caesar Romero plays a Russian officer who is part of the German spy ring.Given that the two countries were at war why was he working for the enemy.Who shot Charley Grapewin and how did he get past the guards?William Powell wants to go off to fight the war,but would never have been allowed to go because of his knowledge of intelligence work.Rosalind Russell inherits a badly written part and does her best with it.
